    with me the other day.

    Yes, I'm part of the 47%.

    President Obama was on tour touting Obamacare, etc.

    The talking head on the news opined that he would not be mentioning those not covered by Obamacare -- all of us living in states with idiot legislatures and Governors who refused to expand Medicaid -- because. . . here's what hit me . . . it would make the Obamacare program look bad if the President talked about the Medicaid problem on the tour.

    It just made me feel completely discarded, disregarded, written off -- not by Rs, who I expect it from, but by my side.

    The white poverty piece made me think of this and then your piece. (We're white, just recently off food stamps, kids have aged out of Medicaid so we have no health insurance now, work is irregular, etc..)

    OK -- back to figuring out financial aid for my daughter. Maybe she will make it out of the 47%. And I don't think she'll be a clueless witch when she does. :)

    •  Nance it is so much deeper in these (0+ / 0-)

      states than we are being told regarding the tea party  and legislators.  We need a whole dialogue of our own version of taking it back from these evil people.  peacefully of course.   The tea party is not what they seem at all.  Get a few wealthy billionaires to fund a few wealthy  backers and they get their help out in the street for a few 100  and then the hate provokers day in and day out brainwashing....you have a movement to put a radical agenda in power.  This is Alec in action under the cover as a grassroots movement.  We know this from the Freedomworks but the media is lying to us regarding their losing power.  These power brokers are keeping us from Obamacare and the president I fear is caught in a trap here because his power is being zapped daily by this bunch...  Not just my assessment.  I am certainly not a defender of things obama does wrong but believe me I think the man is powerless in may areas..including obamacare.

      •  Basically they are dividing and conquering (0+ / 0-)

        and in the most evil distractions.  Then it looks completely like it falls on Obama who God knows has his own problems with some of us who feel discarded.   It is truly a mess.
